Camelot Shortens Again In 2000 Guineas Betting Odds As Race Confirmed As Target
Monday 23 April 2012 at 10:16
The money continued to pour in for Racing Post Trophy winner Camelot over the weekend for the 2000 Guineas when trainer Aidan O’Brien confirmed that Camelot was working towards the May the 5th race. Camelot now looks likely to go off extremely short in the 2000 Guineas Betting Odds but can he justify those odds?
Camelot Looking For Guineas And Derby Double
Camelot is unbeaten in two starts so far in his career and he won both races impressively including the Group One Racing Post Trophy in October. His main aim this year could be the Derby in June but in the mean time he looks likely to reappear in the 2000 Guineas and the first market move a week ago was treated as significant by OLBG Tipster steercleer:
“Camelot now 6/4 with Ladbrokes! They always have an good ear at Ballydoyle.”
Ladbrokes have continued to duck taking bets on Camelot as they have shortened his odds to evens which is by far the lowest odds available, the best odds on Camelot at the time of writing are 6/4 with Bet365 and SkyBet amongst the bookies offering those odds.
Trumpet Major Impressive In His Trial
We saw many of the other likely contenders for the 2000 Guineas over the weekend in the trials at Newmarket and Newbury and perhaps the horse to most enhance his claims was Trumpet Major and OLBG Tipster budgie27 fancies his chances:
"Trumpet Major looked good today. Won the Craven with 3lbs more than Native Khan, did it in a faster time on Good to Soft compared to Good to Firm. Native Khan was good enough to place in the 2000 last year only 1/2 length behind Dubawi Gold who was then placed in the Irish 2000 and we all know what Frankel's form was all about. Trumpet Major looks a player to me, will definitely go to the 2000, Richard Hughes likely to be riding. A lot to like and he's available to back at about 14-1 on Betfair."
2000 Guineas second favourite Top Offer goes straight to the big race after missing his intended reappearance in the Greenham Stakes because of the soft ground at Newbury, he is now priced up at 6/1 with various bookies. Another trial absentee last week was Most Improved who had been well backed for the race until missing the Craven Stakes after being found to be slightly lame in his near foreleg and it is now a race against time for that contender.
